About FATHERING TOGETHER

Location:

1704 KEENEY ST, EVANSTON, IL 60202, US

Mission Statement

Fathering Together’s mission is to build supportive communities for fathers* enriched by resources and storytelling. *We define "father" as anyone who identifies as a father figure. This can include, but is not limited to biological, adoptive, by marriage, grandparents, uncles, and older siblings as well as cisgendered, non-binary, and those on the LGBTQ+ spectrum. We invite all individuals who identify as fathers into our communities and to participate in our programs.

Description

Fathering Together's (FT) mission is to support fathers as they become actively engaged in the lives of their children. Through trainings, resources, and storytelling, FT empowers dads to be their best selves for their families, workplaces, and communities.

FT is a nonprofit that runs a variety of fatherhood Facebook groups with over 126,000 members from around the globe. Our members represent different backgrounds, cultures, political views, and religions. FT hosts Dad Chat Groups to connect dads with their peers for advice and support. FT also provides 1-on-1 coaching to support dads as they navigate the joys and challenges of fatherhood.

As we move forward, FT will launch a number of local, regional, and international chapters. The chapters are powered by FT’s innovative, skill-based Fatherhood Core 5 Curriculum, which builds men’s socio-emotional, cognitive, physical, financial, and spiritual health to become well-rounded and strong role models for their families.

In addition to individual support and community building, FT hosts public conversations and events focused on creating a more equitable world designed to encourage dads as caregivers. The leadership team also works with companies and organizations to develop fatherhood resource groups that enable dads to translate their workplace skills into parenting skills and vice versa. Lastly, FT works to support a healthy work-family balance.
